    recurring itchy bump

    for over 5 years now i randomly get a recurring itchy bump on my leg. it happens for really no specific reason: sometimes when im hot, sometimes when im upset, or sometimes no trigger. and at any time, it could be a day and then the next day, or maybe not until the next week. theres no pattern at all. but the bump is a raised perfectly circle bump, and always in the same exact spot on my left leg (on the lower side of my knee, like right under where the crease would be if you bent your leg). its usually itchy and always red. it goes away on its own within an hour or two if i dont bother or fuss with it. it looks a lot like a mosquito bite. at first i thought it was, but then it came back. i always thought maybe hives, but its strange to me that its always the same spot and perfectly round, with no trigger at all. i hope someone has some answers.

    Hi Adinajenee -

    Since this bump comes and goes be sure to take a photo to show your doctor or dermatologist for them to positively identify what this is.

    In a search of your symptoms I found this information -

    Allergies and Hives (Urticaria and Angioedema)

    Does anything look or sound familiar?
